1988 CVX seat repair
« on: July 25, 2018, 11:11:34 AM »
Thanks Chad !

The original front seats in the 87 CVX-16 are made of hollow blow molded plastic.  When we got it, the bottoms had already been cracked and broken and so bolted onto 1/2 plywood through the  base, not adjustable.  WE want to retain the original seats, the upholstery is in good shape.

Solid Repair.  Added 1/4" alum plates bedded in 5200 marine adhesive and screwed to bottoms.  Then 5/16" rounded top carriage bolts with 2" fender washers through the seat, and through the plates.   Added new sliders.

Sure looks like a quality repair to me, good job.  I only hope the plastic has not reached the brittle stage of it's lifespan, and just cracks elsewhere.
